TWO NIGHTS TILL ‘FOOD FOR ART’: Another reminder about Thursday night – more than half a dozen local restaurants are donating part of the night’s proceeds to Transitional Resources, a West Seattle-based organization that helps people living with mental illness. We featured the lineup in this preview; many are also hosting raffles in which you can participate, and some of the prizes are listed on the Facebook event page. This is timed to coincide with West Seattle Art Walk, so make plans to go out Thursday and enjoy great food AND great art.
TERRIBLE BEAUTY EXPANDING TO LOCATION #3: Some fans of A Terrible Beauty may already have heard this, as they’ve been quietly letting the news get out; we found it on the liquor-license-application list. Renton was their first, West Seattle their second, and now they’re expanding to location #3 on South Lake Union (1001 Fairview Avenue N). ATB co-proprietor Jenna Shannon Garvey O’Brien tells WSB, “We hope to open in July, but you know how that can go as well so we’ve just been saying Summer 2012. We will also have an outdoor walk up Chip shop at this location called Fish ‘n Tings.”
